“The wind that makes music in November corn is in a hurry. The stalks hum, the loose husks whisk skyward in half-playing swirls, and the wind hurries on… A tree tries to argue, bare limbs waving, but there is no detaining the wind.”

~ Aldo Leopold (American author, philosopher, naturalist, ecologist, and conservationist; 1887-1948)

I invite you to join me on a walk outside in the blustery joy of a November wind. Gather and savor the liveliness of leafless trees scraping the sky and a skein of southbound geese cleaving the clouds. Rejoice in the unique beauty of your late autumn garden . . . .
